Daily Bible Reading Notes

MikeSandersGenealogy & Birth Narrative (Matt 1-2)

Three of the five women included in the genealogy of Jesus were infamous. It is even more so among the “fathers.”

Matthew emphasizes the fulfillment of prophecy in the record of Jesus’ conception and birth account. Each is a literal fulfillment of the words of the prophet (1:22-23; 2:15; 2:16-18, 23). Even Herod acted on the basis of a literal interpretation of the prophets (2:5-8).

Lessons from Matthew 1-2:

• Repentance affords me a renewed relationship and I am returned to the Potter’s hands.

• Reality is as God says, not as I see it.

• Fulfilled prophecy makes both God’s plan and His power evident.

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:10
